I am planning a castle cake for an adult friend and want to try and achieve the effect in these pictures.

I am thinking blue sanding sugar on the tops of the turrets and everything then covered with Wilton clear/white sparkles. What do you think? Any other suggestions?

How about using some crystals hanging off of the cake? I saw one done with hanging crystals and it was fabulous!

Use blue fondant and put disco dust on it in both blue disco and silver. Then you can buy these little LED lights that can click on for up to 8 hrs. Put some of them so that they shine upward and it will illuminate the disco and give you a great effect.

Julie Beyshore (sp) has a white glitter that would give you this look. If pipe your design with piping gel and then blow the glitter off your brush onto the area you will get a very pretty affect. Wilton's piping gel won't work, you need a thicker piping gel. There is a brand (perhaps someone else can help with the name because for the life of me cannot remember it right now) that comes in a clear jar and in many colors. When it dries, it holds the exact shape you piped so you can use different piping techniques with it. When it's dry and with the glitter, it can look just like ice.

I can't help, but I would absolutely LOVE to see this cake when it's done. I love the concept.

Thank you both for such nice comments. I was really afraid the cake was going to be too childish looking but when I set it in the middle of the cake table it really did look sweet and elegant.
